responded to my call right away and when he came out to give an estimate, he clearly knew what he was talking about. Principally, I wanted the insulation in about 1/3 of the basement/crawl space to be replaced because it was falling down. I wasn't sure about the whole 'vapor seal' thing. I know a lot of companies are pushing this these days, and for all I know it could be a scam. He did recommend it, and I wanted one not because I was sure that it would keep moisture out of the basement, but because the crawl space floor was sandy, and I didn't want our cat using it as a litter box. Anyway, he said it would be about $475 for the job, but that it would be bumped up to $550 because that was the minimum price for a job. That's too bad that I paid an extra $75 for nothing, but all in all I was surprised at the low price and that he wasn't pushing all kinds of extra things that I "needed". I had heard horror stories from friends who had called similar companies and got a long list of perhaps unnecessary "needed" projects from these types of contractors. He also pointed out that one piece of insulation (which was not going to be replaced) had been installed backwards. I asked if he could fix it for me and he offered to throw it in at no extra cost. We set a date for the next Monday for the work to be done. He wasn't there for the job, but rather it was a couple of 18 year olds. They got the job done quickly, but didn't remove any of the debris from the crawl space floor, which had been part of the original estimate. We had to call
to sort it out, he agreed with us and told the guys, so they took out the debris. When they were finished however, there were a few points on which I was not satisfied. There was still a lot of debris on top of the vapor seal that they left, so who knows how much is under the vapor seal? Also, the vapor seal was not put down in one corner where there were some heavy pipes. As for the insulation, there were many little bits hanging down, which was part of the reason I wanted new insulation in the first place, so I didn't think that was quite right. Finally, they did not reverse that piece of installation that had been put in backwards. I called
in regards to these a few days later, and he told me that he would have someone out first thing the next morning to deal with these issues. As promised, someone did come the next morning and addressed all of my concerns. All in all I'm satisfied with what I got for my money, but wish there would be a little more quality control on the jobs so I wouldn't have to call back for a second visit.

Logos was great. Very thorough and remarkable follow up to offer suggestions and names of contractors who could help us. We would highly recommend them. We have followed a number of their recommendations, and hope to do more over time. It was helpful to know that new windows would provide only modest energy savings and that other measures could be more helpful, such insulations in various parts of the attic and basement, caulking leaks. They gave us the name of a contractor who repaired our sliding glass door so we didn't have to purchase a new one. I thought at first the price was high, but now I think we got more than our money's worth.

We had a smell coming from under our home and we could smell it every time we opened the closets; it was terrible. They came out to investigate and decided to put up a vapor

under the floor. We thought it was very cost effective as it kept the smell out of the home. They did a very good job and we have had no problems with the smell since.

We have been employing them for over twenty years, and they were the company who installed the original insulation. Not much has changed in twenty years; they are still hard working and polite. The job took a few hours for them to finish, and all of the old insulation was taken away. We have already noticed a difference in the internal temperature of the house.

We have an older home (built 1929) which had old and rusted foundation vents which needed to be replaced.
We had a small foundation access door which was replaced with larger commercial door
We also needed the crawl space cleaned and vapor

put down
Lastly, old radiator pipes and newer copper were mostly uninsulated and so we had this done also.
They did a very nice job of installing new vents - the existing holes in the double brick foundation were expanded and they did very nice job without damaging remaining brick. The new access door likewise is a nice addition.
We immediately noticed an improvement in hot water temperature after pipes were wrapped under the house and I actually turned back the hot water heater a few degrees
The only minor issue was that the insulation sleeves for the old radiator pipes had to be custom ordered and this added another 500.00 to the job that was not in the original estimate. Mr.

was very upfront about the additional cost and given the fine job that they did, I did not have any problem with the additional expense. They actually came on a Sunday afternoon to finish the job and it took another 4 hours to finish the pipe insulation.
I found that Mr.

& his crew lived up to the strong reputation I expected from previous reviews.

Went very well. Communication was excellent and we were given various options on costs and the effect on the R rating of our insulation as well. Work was done over a two day period - first day was the foam, and the 2nd day was the insulation. Workmen were punctual, polite and efficient! They covered all of our items in the attic - I will admit some foam got on them, but not much and it can be easily removed if needed.
The effect it hand on our upstairs heating was dramatic, so I wished we'd done this a long time ago!

Mercaldo is skilled, polite, punctual and responsive at every stage of the process of evaluating, estimating, and performing work we have had done over several occasions.
The first occasion was replacing an original construction craftsman bungalow entry door and sidelights with a customer-purchased replacement. Even though this entailed resizing the opening from 86" high to 80",
Norfolk Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
was able to complete the job securely and such that the results appear to be original. He meticulously matched the existing architectural moldings with custom replacements, where needed and finished the framing so well that one cannot tell that the taller door was there - nor that the shorter door is not appropriate, both visually and architecturally, to the space. The outside is equally well done and installed so that the custom door sill was retained. All facets of the job, from preparation to cleanup, were fast, efficient and well-executed.
Our next occasion was for the insulation in the basement/crawl area and some miscellaneous trim work around doorways in our family room/hallway/kitchen area. As with the door,
Norfolk Insulation Contractors Provider Name Locked
provided detailed and responsive feedback as we worked with him to define the scope of work. Once we settled on a plan, he provided us regular notification as to planning up to the scheduled week for the work to be performed. At that time, he coordinated start date and time and proceeded to complete this work as planned. He routinely goes out of his way to ensure he delights his customers - not just with the routine excellence he demonstrates in the work he performs, but in the little extras he brings to the job. In the case of the insulation of our basement area, he observed that the original portion of the house (under which the full basement sits) was built with a rather large gap between the foundation and the overlap of the siding. This seems to have been usual for that vintage but resulted in significant air incursion that was essentially above the insulation he was installing. To prevent this leak, he customized a foam and batting combination that effectively limited the air from entering above the insulation - allowing the basement to vent without allowing conditioned air from escaping the living areas. In the crawl area, he noted that a pump (supporting geothermal) was missing sound insulation on a side not visible from the basement and took the extra step to finish that enclosure - greatly reducing the amount of sound that travels to the living area when the heating/cooling system is in operation. As with the door, he completed this work and cleaned the area well.
Overall, we are well pleased with

and

and are already planning the next two or three projects for him to complete.

We had cellulose insulation removed from the attic to facilitate electrical work. Following the completion of the electrical work we had cellulose insulation blown into the attic as well as batting installed in two scuttles. The dispatcher and I worked out a schedule a week before the work started and he called on the business day before the work to confirm the schedule. On both days, the crew arrived on time, worked quickly, and reviewed their work with me when they finished. I appreciated their cooperative attitude and willingness to supplement insulation where I requested. After the crew left I found some space I forgot to ask them to stuff with batting. I called the office asking for some extra batting that I could use to fill the gap. They said no problem and the gentleman who brought the batting that same afternoon insisted on instalingl it. Made my day.

We had issues in our crawl space, broken air duct, insulation problems. So we called

. They came right away, checked crawl space, and gave us a very reasonable estimate. One day later, they came to fix everything and did a very good job.

Estimate received in mail recommended over $1000 worth of work. When I stated that we just wanted to have $500 worth of work for the $149 listed on Angie's List, representative stated that Big Deal was no longer available (contrary to date listed on Angie's site when I signed up) . This was very clearly a bait and switch tactic to get in people's home and scare them into buying services they did not originally want.
